Mags Direct gets a new look

I’ve been slowly shutting down a lot of my hobby sites, as my spare time is taken with organising DIY Punk gigs these days (and going to more gigs). BUT one site that has been getting my attention is the fully commercial Mags Direct, a magazine shop which is part of the Frontline Group of companies I work for. I’ve recently been working on a range of upgrades, including a total re-design – using a different theme...

Mags Direct, New Online Magazine Shop

I’ve been lucky enough to combine my WordPress experience with my day job for the first time, creating a brand new ecommerce website to sell the UK’s top magazines.  The concept is to sell single copies of magazines at their coverprice (same as shop price), but posted 1st class to the customers door, for FREE!   No having to buy a long subscription, just get the issue you want, when you want it (we’ll hold back issue...

New Website; James Wilson Darts Pro

Yep I’ve been busy again, with yet another professional darts player website created. This time it’s recent BDO number 1 and PDC tour card winner, James ‘Jammie Dodger’ Wilson, who has joined MDA Promotions management. The site is WordPress powered (of course), using a fully responsive theme, as being easy to read and use on mobile devices is so important these days. The framework is in place, once the season...

New Website; The Scary Clown Presents

I’ve been using my spare time constructively, creating another WordPress website.  Again it’s an eCommerce site, using WooCommerce plugin and a custom 3rd party theme. It’s for a DIY Punk Collective which I’m part of (three mates who put on gigs) – we don’t like the term promoter.  We needed videos/gallery to show what our previous gigs have been like, along with an upcoming shows/events system, and...

New Website; Punk Rock’s WONK UNIT

I’m using my time between jobs well – spending some time creating a new website for a favourite band of mine, the uniquely different and fun punk rock WONK UNIT. Four albums in they really are defining their own sound, it’s slightly surreal, melodic, with fun/silly/thoughtful lyrics – more poems really put to some catchy tunes. Apart from the odd track, not ‘shouty’ aggressive punk at all –...

Peterborough Beer festival 2014 is Coming!

It’s mid-June, so that means that us local Peterborians are thinking about August’s Beer Festival, the UK’s biggest outdoor festival of beer! Nearly 400 beers, loads of ciders, English wines, lots of grub and a massive music tent with bands on every day, that’s what we are talking about! Peterborough’s CAMRA is the biggest in the country, probably due to the 30,000+ ale drinkers who come through the doors...
